This is the first magazine on our new website! We are so proud to show you our new website. We still have to fill in some empty spots, but we are working on that. But please, check our video’s they are so great and share them!
In this newsletter I will elaborate further on the subject freedom of movement and I have a scoop for you which is the direct result of the choice we have made.
Of course this time we also have a new (FREE) sound meditation, which was custom made for the energetic update you will find later in the magazine.
Enjoy reading the magazine and I wish you bundles of inspiration!

What is motion?
Everyone seems to want to liberate themselves from the limitations and expectations which surround us. We are searching for true authenticity. Where before it was a mental wish we were more than willing to live towards, it now seems to have touched down is us more like: ‘Enough already’…..now there is only room left for me and who I truly am.
This movement also has a downside, and that means that we must say our farewells and part from everything and everyone that no longer fits with your authentic self. Lovingly and sometimes with sparks flying, we shake off our adopted lives…we say farewell to the conditioning we had embraced and we start making choices that fit us much better.
Slowly we are realizing, that how this was communicated to us, does not coincide with reality and you could view this movement as the true obvious sign of our awakening.
Maybe a lot of people believe that through this awakening everything will become ‘more beautiful’, ‘more loving’ and ‘lighter’. But apart from advertisements, where everything always seems perfect, in reality no one wakes up and jumps out of bed filled with happiness and surrounded with beauty in the morning. First there is that moment where you need to adjust to returning to earth and then you slowly start awakening. And what surely is also going on is….the longing for the live you had, but the knowledge that you cannot live in a dream. This despair consumes us, every day. Somewhere the dream within us wants to live on….we want to keep romanticizing our view of the world and we would prefer to not really see the reality of the force of destruction, that we are also confronted with.
Sometimes it is just that much more pleasurable to pretend that the world we live in does not exist…a world we would prefer to file away as being the dream world instead… and that therefore your wishes and thoughts of the world are the ones that are reality. Awakening in this state can be a painful reminder of that which truly is….beyond that which is what we truly wish for. But if we act on this, we will retreat into our beds…..and dream on…dream of elves and aliens that are coming to save us. I believe that we can only rescue ourselves by choosing reality. Not only when it is convenient for us, but always….and from this reality we will no longer dream of a new world, but you will truly mold it in your own special way, with your unique contribution to it.
Because reality does offer its rewards. You can live based upon your integral self. Not just based upon thoughts, mental projections and fears of failure, but as a whole which solely from being present becomes the most powerful generator that we require to stand in this reality and to send out a signal of true involvement.
So wake up…..sleep no more.Do not shut your eyes to reality….step into it like a tree in the eye of the storm….no longer let yourself be prescribed how to live or what to achieve…simply choose to stand up every moment of every day….and to endure…without being toppled over by words, thoughts and the wishes of others…
Do what you are able to and that which you enjoy….and do not be ashamed of who you are. Do not make excuses for the choices you have made or will make in the future. You can surround yourself with people that belong to your reality by being truly genuine.

We have been collecting a lot of information, insights and the tools. Beautiful, but how do we help people on their way without teaching them? To experience it ourselves we traveled to the USA Sedona, a place to make plans and use the energies over there.
We have made plans for our retreats in which we can give people a kickstart or a boost of their path of being an ambassador for the Joint Vision. The retreat will be organized in Sedona, Hawaï and the Netherlands, in which people can experience the different energies of the countries and atmosphere. At the moment we are busy writing down the script of the program in Sedona.
Meanwhile a member of the Joint Vision, Gabriëlle decided to take a step back and spend less time on the Joint Vision. This has consequences, but we manage. We hope she can make her own decision what to do next, nevertheless, thank you Gabriëlle for all the work you already put into the Joint Vision!
In the meantime, Iris Barkhuysen, her artist name is Isea, is making her own album!!
Here you can hear a sample of The Deep, listen & enjoy …

On a daily basis many funny, touching, hilarious or inspiring things reach us through social media. We see many things that invoke laughter or tears and every so often something pops up that touches me to the depths of my soul and which can hugely inspire me. We want to share those videos, quotes or tips with you, which have inspired me in any possible way.

Sometimes you stumble upon something that makes you think “I want to know more about that”.
For example take sungazing. Something I think everyone would like to do. A bit of gazing at the sun and getting a tan. In the meantime you do a little meditation where you travel to Hawaii and hang in a hammock under a palm tree. Resulting in barely having to eat anything tangible anymore, keeping your body in optimal youthful condition and simultaneously slowing down your pace of life.
When I heard of a lecture in my neighborhood about sungazing by the Dutch expert on this subject called Ron van Dijen, I immediately penciled it in my schedule.
On the night in question it was obvious to me who the lecturer was. A beautiful suntanned body, which precise calculation of age was only to be estimated by calculation, moved through the room. This was a good sign. I entered into the lecture all ears. This was a slam dunk, I could implement this the next day in my own life.
Three hours later I stood corrected.
For sungazing one thing is imperative being the visibility of the sun and then more specifically directly in the early morning when the sun rises. You must be able to see the horizon and have your feet planted in sand. So you have to take into consideration that we live in The Netherlands where it is often overcast and we have a lot of ‘horizon pollution’. Solving the sand issue is easy, you just lift out a piece of pavement. As far as I could make out Ron had this under control.
Because wherever on earth he is at any given time, he starts out each day that the sun shows it’s face with his sun ritual.
You are meant to start out with a relaxed gaze into the sun for five seconds. And of course you do this without sunglasses. Every day you are allowed to add 5 seconds to this. A clouded or overcast day stagnates the progression of gazing time. In this way your day starts at about 4 am in summertime. In winter you can start up in a more leisurely fashion. The ultimate goal is to be able to stare straight into the sun for three quarters of an hour without harming your eyes. In this way your body should be able to absorb enough energy through your eyes to sustain you throughout the day.
Turns out that in practice it is only possible for a lucky few throughout the world to achieve this. That is why apart from partaking in sunlight, it is advisable to eat and drink reliable and safe food and water. Especially if you are performing physically hard labor. Ron also added that he, on each day that the sun presented itself, would lay in the sun naked for a half hour. Both in summer and in winter. In his own garden behind a windscreen that was quite an achievable thing according to him. Especially if you started this practice in summer and gradually acclimated to the harsher temperatures. All natural processes in our bodies are activated in this same manner, including the self healing properties and the production of vitamin D.
On top of this Ron produces his own solar water by leaving spring water in a glass bottle out in the sun for a day. Before and after sungazing it is good practice to drink at least two glasses of this water. And concerning food, well preferably from your own garden or from a neighborhood farmer from your own neck of the woods.
I started to understand why that hammock in Hawaii seemed so far away. Silently I’m hoping that the sun will be out and visible tomorrow. It rises at a relaxed 8.28 am. That should be do-able.
We are spreading our wings and we are going global. We are looking forward to meeting our friends globally. With our new website we want to expand our global network. Are you the ambassador we are looking for?
